    Killed in a road accident at Pamankada ? What a tragedy. One of the cars or both would have been well over the speed limit. Government should step up to take these road accidents seriously in order to stop the road carnage.

    at the same time people should be responsible of what they are doing.. just because someone can afford something doesn't give the person any special rights to disregard common law. Parents should be mind full about what their kids do. Law should be equal to every citizen of this country..

    RIP. This is the second fatal accident within a week in Colombo. Some people think well done Colombo roads when deserted are race tracks

    There are things and things the Government can do, we citizens should know to do the right thing and to be disciplined and follow rules and regulations.

    Subaru's are very fast great cars. Unfortunately on this occasion it was driven by a not so great guy

    That particular merging intersection needs a traffic light and CCTV installation. Authorities should develop that road and make it safe. Hope the injured would recover and the deceased RIP.

    The drivers are not aware of the power of these modern vehicles. In the cushioned seats they dont feel the speed. Were they wearing seat belts. Expose the name of the other driver. I am sure he is a son of a backhand politician.

    All Crazy and careless drivers coming from people who make dirty money. Unfortunately innocent people are paying compensation for their carelessness. No justice for these culprits

    OWNER OF SPORTS CAR MAY A FROM A POWERFUL OR AN HIGHLY INFLUENTAL CONNECTION, THAT IS WHY THE IDENTITY IS NOT DISCLOSED. HE IS IN A PRIVATE HOSPITAL, WHERE AS HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN REMANDED

    Clearly the blue car was speeding well over the speed limit while the other car was in a hurry to make the right turn. The speed limits is set and regulated for a reason, the very reason that is shown in the CCTV footage here.
